Designing Continuous Manufacturing Processes for Solid-Dosage Drugs: Development to Commercial Scale

Designing Continuous Manufacturing Processes for Solid-Dosage Drugs: Development to Commercial Scale

04/02/2019, 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM

Javits Conventions Center - Innovation Stage - Booth 1281
Several solid-dosage drugs are now approved for manufacture using continuous processes, and early adopters and equipment manufacturers have been making progress in addressing engineering challenges. Two of the potential advantages of continuous manufacturing compared to batch manufacturing are rapid development and flexibility in scale. This panel discussion will consider what benefits are being realized and what challenges are arising as continuous processes are commercialized. Experts will discuss best practices for and challenges in tech transfer and scale-up/scale-out from development to commercial scale.
